One of London most recognisable hotel names, has to be The Savoy, proudly standing on the Northbank of the River Thames, and within walking distance of the vibrant Covent Garden, it has a long history linked to high society. The Savoy is a symbol of London luxury and elegance, steeped in the historical influences of English Edwardian design and sensational Art Deco style.

The Savoy prides itself on fine dining and traditional afternoon teas, it also boasts an award winning cocktail bar. Personally I love visiting the American Bar when I’m in town for a cocktail, there are some amazing old black and white photographs of celebrities and movie stars who have visited The Savoy back in the day.

What a truly iconic place to hold your wedding and they accommodate small intimate weddings in their private dining rooms right up to elaborate and extravagant weddings in the Lancaster Ballroom or River.

One of my favourite rooms to photograph weddings in is the stately Royal Suite, which occupies half of the hotel’s entire fifth floor and has a spectacular river view backdrop. I’ve taken some wonderful photographs of newly wed couples standing next to their classic wedding car with the eponymous The Savoy sign in the background – such a wonderful memory of a wonderful venue!

The Savoy holds a kosher catering license which is why so many of my Jewish clients find this the perfect wedding venue.

One of my most iconic bridal images was shot at The Savoy, a simple composition of a stunning bride standing against the wall under a candelabra, however it did take some additional work to ensure the lighting was perfect.
